NNA – Members of the “Strong Republic” Parliamentary Bloc, MPs George Okais and Fadi Saad, submitted Saturday a law proposal that aims to establish the National Drug Authority, which, according to the proposal, will ensure good governance and supervision of the process of importing, producing, and distributing medicine and medical supplies, based on a participatory process between the professional syndicates, such as the Pharmacists and Doctors’ Syndicates, and the Ministry of Public Health.

As for the second project law submitted by MPs Okais and Saad, which was also signed by Deputies Wehbe Qatisha, Majed Eddie Abi al-Lamaa and Jean Talouzian, it aims to grant compensation to individuals who are held in pre-trial detention under certain conditions. The proposal is inspired by a similar French law that obliges the state to compensate for those unlawfully held in detention.
